Georgia Tech is a great school. At the same time though, it is very challenging. It is in a great area (Midtown Atlanta) and also has a great return as the average salary out of Tech is around 70k. There are many opportunities on campus for students to get experience and help with getting internships, co-ops, and jobs. The only thing I wish Tech would improve on is its food as it is very average and could be way better, considering how high tuition is. Also, I think that more attention to mental and student health should be emphasized as well. Overall, I do enjoy Georgia Tech. Know what you are getting yourself into though!

I graduated with two degrees in 5 years. I loved my experience! There are so many resources and opportunities, all you have to do is take the initiative to ask for help or reach out to new people and explore. There are students and instructors from all over the world. The campus is very inclusive. If something doesn’t already exist then you can create it! It’s in the middle of the city so you should always be aware of your surroundings, but campus it’s self is very safe. The old dorms are not very nice but they’ve been renovating the dorms and the new ones are great!
A great institution, especially for STEM majors! Georgia Tech provides a rich learning experience, vast research and plentiful of co-op opportunities, and a multi-cultural campus. It is ranked in the top 10 schools for many STEM majors in the United States due to its strong education system.
